I talked about some of the top 10 stupid laws in Britain. I feel, there are more such laws – the following quote from a UK newspaper website might be the result of such a law:
Sorry we are unable to accept comments for legal reasons.
The article was about the 19 year-old hermit ‘hacker’ who was arrested in the UK. The article reveals his mother’s statement about his suicide threats if she took away his computer, his childhood photos and other personal details of Cleary.
If the Daily Mail newspaper can legally publish an article, why can’t the readers comment on it? I am wondering, what legal problem might it arise if one talks about the news?
May be it is another stupid law to curb the freedom of voice!
There is no reason to celebrate this world record. The smelliest man in the world, Kailash Singh, hasn’t washed himself for more than 37 years. The man stopped bathing or cutting his hair (hair has grown to 6 ft long) since 1974, just after getting married.
The world’s most expensive razor can be yours if you can spend $100,000. The hefty price tag comes from sapphire blades and Iridium handle. Iridium is considered to be the strongest and the rarest metal found in earth.
The solid white sapphire blades in the razor is guaranteed to last a decade. For that 10 years, Zafirro will provide free servicing, professional cleaning and re-sharpening, if required. The blades are extremely sharp, hypoallergenic, and won’t have problem of oxidation and corrosion.
Zafirro, the manufacturer is planning to produce only 99 of those razors as the metal, iridium, is 10 times more rare than platinum. Iridium is primarily used in things like rocket engine, where durability is critical.
